Re: Looks like they landed on their feet
So the attainable boat is only attainable to a portion of the 4.3% and therefore not really attainable except to a very select few. I thought the figures from the 2018 US Wage Report made it pretty evident that the $95,000 boat really was not attainable by very many people. Perhaps that is why so many are giving them away for a $1 or just walking away and letting them sink at the mooring.
Nobody is giving away $95,000 boats for $1. The vast majority of $1 boats have negative value. Inexperienced newbs, like the original subjects of this thread, may think
they’re getting a $95,000 boat for $1, but they’re not, as they will learn when they inevitably run out of money and abandon their boat. They may wish they didn’t leave an electronic trail on YouTube.
